"A Life Individual" visits the home of architect Gwen Tan, a very personal space that opens up to the natural beauty of Singapore now one of the greenest cities in the world. "Our home is built upon the lifestyle we embrace. We love to entertain; we are passionate about plants and natural light. This house is designed to allow indulgences in these simple pleasures."

"For me, making a magical house is a bit like cooking. It is never just one ingredient that makes it great, and a lot of it has to do with the love, with the care, attention and time - you just can’t do it fast, it’s part of an ongoing story that is largely autobiographical."

Each room of our home is individual so we can retreat to find our own space. It is an oasis. One of our favourite pieces of furniture is the Bend sofa. I know my Sarah likes it because it's bouncy but for me it's unique. It's functional and casual and reflects the way we live.
Our house is our space, a reflection of us and a haven from a busy working life. We fill it with laughter, family, friends and quiet times too. Our furniture needs to blend in with the elegance of 1930's architecture, but at the same time be warm and inviting to strike a perfect balance of luxury and comfort.
Design definitely enriches my day-to-day life and having a house of our own that's designed is a softer way of living, a calmer way of living. Our home is elegantly understated and it is enjoyable to be in.
My apartment is cluttered but curated. I don't like an empty home. I want to live and breathe design from the moment I wake each morning. When friends come over I love to see their surprise, to feel the mystery of all these objects. I see my collection as a library of thoughts.
We strived for a home that wasn't complete at the start but something that could be extended,refined and finished over time. It's a blank canvas so it is the furniture which reflects the way we live in this house.
I love this room, it is eclectic with lots of memories. The Mongolian fur armchairs are some of my favourite pieces because they tell a story of the designer watching his wife lacing her corset. We live in this incredible universe that has so much beauty and design inherent in it, by expressing that in both the small and large parts of your day you can have a joyful life.
Home is a creative retreat for me, a place where I can watch the seasons flow. I enjoy the contrasting textures of my favourite pieces, the balance of soft silk rugs and upholstery, with bronze, stone and wood. The elements combine to make my apartment nurturing and calm, allowing me to think and recharge.
